All that is required is to have the RESOURCE.AUD in the game's folder edit the RESOURCE.CFG to point to it. The more I see of the GOG releases, the more I am convinced that they don't really understand the SCI games.
I guess it's much less work for them to just mount the image than to extract the files, adapt configuration files etc. ;-). Also I never saw them claiming the understand how SCI works nor do I see any reason for them to understand it, simple repackaging the games like they do should be less work ;-).

As far as I'm concerned they could just give you the option of downloading the gog/iso file and skip the installer. Now I have to run the installer with wine just to get to the game files...

But hey, it's a Windows world...

Anyway: GK1 starts with scummvm which makes me all warm with nostalgia. Now for a test drive.
